03/11/2018 - College PREP - Albuquerque, NM Shade is an athletic OF graduating in 2018. In the field, Shade shows efficient feet and gains ground on balls in the gaps, getting behind the baseball to make plays. He shows firm hands when catching the baseball but flips his glove when coming through ground balls. By presenting his glove early, it will allow him to stay low and be more aggressive through the ball, while preventing possible errors. He has a loose, low 3/4 arm action and uses him momentum to throw the ball to his targets. Implementing a long toss program could improve his velocity. At the plate, Shade shows a tall, quiet set up with a square stride and a good load. He shows a fluid rhythm and a strong center balance. His front side stays firm through his swing giving him his fast bat speed. Shade makes consistently hard contact, never getting cheated out of swings. He shows a direct swing path and a line drive, power type approach. With some more development, Shade could play at the next level.
